About Movember

The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

Since Movember’s humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia when 30 men grew moustaches, Movember has become a truly global movement, inspiring more than 4 million men and women to participate across 21 countries. The Movember community has raised over $550 million, and has funded more than 800 programs to date. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
